I`m trying to connect a server my current domain. So far I just have server 2003 on the system with no roles. This server will act as a backup or a application server in the future.

My other server 192.168.52.183 is acting as a AD,dns, terminal server and is running other computer programs works fine.

When try to connect to the domain i keep getting cant find domain message..

When typing nslook i`m getting this error...

You should be setting the DNS to look at the AD server not at the other IP (Or adding records to that DNS Server). It needs to find records in DNS to tell it who the PDC is.

Your computer can't reach the default DNS servers, which are defined as:

   DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 107.7.59.210
                                       207.230.75.50

Change it so the DNS server is 192.168.52.183.

You might also want to edit your question to provide the correct answer for someone who happens to come across it.
